a usb 3.5 drive compatible amiga, how difficult ?

Hi guys,
is there someone which have an idea if
1.is this possible ? (making an usb df0, a real one, not an adf reader)
2.How difficult could it be ?
3. How much could cost a final product ??

I ask because my pc is older and older, i would like to tranform it in amiga, but i think it would be cool to read the real thing, to make it a perfect look a like.
ps: forget the only amiga is the commodore amiga, etc, etc...
i know all of this, if i could i would buy an amiga 4000 but the prices are insanes, even for this incredible machine.

So I mean you are talking about using WinUAE or something to emulate an Amiga?

Not sure if a PC Floppy drive might already read Amiga disks, but it just doesnt know how to process them.

I know you can use PC drives in an amiga, I have a Tower case I put an Amiga 500 in and bought an adaptor to allow the PC drive to connect straight to the Amiga, so the drive is capable.

Should certainly be possible using a microprocessor. Some of them even have hardware USB.

I could possibly be bothered to try and make one, but I do not have the required hardware.

the user 'catphish' on here is working on a solution for something like this using an STM32 microcontroller. I don't know how much is publicly available though, but there's a few posts by him/her.
